thanks for the comments.
the original goal for this document was to replace section 2 [1] of the 
owl overview  since numerous people had commented on how useful it 
was.   We thought that the ebiquity card was a nice model that had 
similar usage.
the original plan was to have a condensed version that hopefully would 
fit on 2 pages but i am not wedded to the 2 page idea.  (i know some 
others strongly prefer a version that is 2 pages though).  if we could 
get to 2 pages without sacrificing too much, that is ok with me but if 
we have content that we feel is quite useful that pushes it a little 
above 2, that is also ok with me.  if keeping a small amount more length 
increases either its useful content or its understandability, that is a 
tradeoff that i think is worth making.
